Langley Food Bank
The BC Corvette Club regularly raises money and food donations for the Langley Food Bank at our annual "Christmas Social". Over the years we have raised thousands of dollars and hundreds of pounds of food for the Food Bank! In addition, in July of 2020, we raised $1,000 in donations from our generous members during our "BCCC Cares"initiative!
Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau (Kruise for Kids)
Kruise For Kids is organized by the Greater Vancouver Car Club Council. The Kruise is in support of the the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau to collect toys for less fortunate kids in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley areas. In addition to toys supplied by club members, the club makes a cash donation to the Kruise.
BCIT Automotive Trades Program (Bursary Award)
Working with the British Columbia Institute of Technology the club has also awarded a scholarship to a deserving student entering the automotive program. Our donation of $1,500 is in support of the Entrance Awards Program for students entering the following eligible programs: Auto Collision Refinishing Technician, Auto Collision Repair Technician, Automotive Mechanic ELTT, and Automotive Service Technician. One student per year entering the program is awarded the money.
BC Cancer Foundation
In 2008 the BC Corvette Club raised close to $2,800 towards cancer research. This money was raised almost entirely by our wonderful Corvette Ladies who each year produce a calendar featuring Corvettes and their Women. (A wonderful combination!)
Variety – the Children’s Charity steps in where health care ends, providing direct help to children with special needs in BC and the Yukon. Variety as an organization was founded on the idea that we can do more good as a team.
The original Variety Club was formed in 1927. This alliance developed into an organization that puts children first and, today, now boasts 43 chapters in 11 countries. The British Columbia chapter was established in 1966 with the focus on children who have special needs throughout the province. Continually inspired by our teamwork roots, we’ve partnered with donors and businesses to raise millions of dollars to help children and families across the province.
